    Hello,

    Very nice ... which one is that? BTW, what's your host?

    To the best of my knowledge, MAC is not officially supported ... yet. So, what device did you define in the .vmx under networking: Intel Pro/1000 or vlance or vmxnet ... ?

    Mrk

    the little icon with the ethernet card is "on" and as long as the mac vm thinks it has a card it should work.

    try changing the network card settings in vmware, the default option might not always work for you, depending on your setup.

    try putting it in "NAT" mode, and start up/reboot your virtual machine. hopefully it'll work

    at first glance in your config, i think it looks fine, i can't see anything that jumps me just off the bat.

    i'm not sure, maybe the irq is out of "expected" range or something similar. uhm. sorry, i'm not going to be of any use here. i have no legitimate copy of os x that works on x86, so i can't try it myself.

    Edit: spelling mistake

    Hello,

    This is yours:

    ethernet0.wakeOnPcktRcv = "FALSE"
    ethernet0.pciSlotNumber = "32"

    ethernet0.present = "TRUE"
    ethernet0.vnet = "VMnet0"
    ethernet0.connectionType = "nat"
    ethernet0.addressType = "generated"
    ethernet0.generatedAddress = "00:0c:29:f0:e7:1e"
    ethernet0.generatedAddressOffset = "0"


    Try this:

    ethernet0.present = "TRUE"
    ethernet0.virtualDev = "vlance"
    ethernet0.connectionType = "nat"
    ethernet0.addressType = "generated"
    ethernet0.generatedAddress = "00:0c:29:fb:98:6f"
    ethernet0.generatedAddressOffset = "0"

    Replace your ethernet entries with the above except the first two...

    Mrk

    P.S. Your vmx is messy ... try to keep it tidy, group by hw category ...

    aigle:

    i'm not sure if their terms of usage agreement says that "you can only run this software on legitimate apple hardware".. that would be fine print anyway, per se there shouldn't be an issue with running any piece of software in a virtual machine, as long as you paid for it and so on.

    now hacking os x to run nativly on non-apple hardware, that's not fair use at *all* :)

    *edit:

    what i'm trying to say is, as long as you don't reverse engineer or change the software you should be grand.

    Hi mrk,

    while this is true, OS X is still "locked" to apple manufactured pc's.. you wont be able to install it on a "normal" pc just like that.
    well, not always anyway. some might work, but you need a bit of luck :D

    Finally got it to work with some help. As I own a copy of Mac OS X I carried on and virtualised it, but I now believe (unless someone can update me) OS X is not an OS that can be virtualised as Apple will not allow its OS to run on non Apple hardware.
